quantr (1722336) writes "A new scientific study has boosted hopes of a cure to the often debilitating condition.
Research by a group of scientists from Kyoto University in Japan, published in the Science magazine on Thursday, found that the internal body clock might be able to be reset, overcoming the effects of jet lag.
Tiredness, insomnia and other symptoms of jet lag occur when the body's "circadian rhythm" – or body clock — is out of sync with nature's light and dark hours. The temporary sleep disorder commonly affects those flying across multiple time zones, as their body clock is often hours ahead — or behind — their end location."
